During the train depot scene, the pendulum of the regulator clock on the wall is not moving yet as the scenes progress, the hands of the clock move from 2:10 to 3:30. Impossible for hands to move without the pendulum as it was not an electric clock and certainly not a quartz movement circa 1920. See more »
A rural farm community in Minnesota deals with one of it's resident's new postal bride from Germany post World War I
I was also able to view this beautiful film at a pre-screening in Northfield through St. Olaf and Carleton Colleges. I cannot praise this film enough. I am so excited to have Ali make more films and so anxious for this film to be released in theaters so that everyone may enjoy it. I also stayed after the film for a Q&A with Ali (the director) and it was really interesting to hear him speak about the film. Fantastic film, gorgeous filming, heartfelt story. Tears rolled down my face at the end; extremely touching film. I think people of all ages will appreciate this film. The director comes from commercial work and advertising so his transition to film was interesting to hear about, but it seemed to be extremely successful! I can't say enough about Sweet Land!
